I have been awfully busy - preparing for this Sunday's Welcome Wagon Bridal Show but I am also just as excited by upcoming Christmas projects, so inbetween bridal style creations, I have been playing with my christmas toys!
I was inspired by the amazing talents of a designer whose works are responsible for some of Sizzix's and the Big SHot's top sellers - the pop-ups! Her name is Karen Burniston...maybe I've already mentioned her here, probably. Anyways, she did this beautiful gray & white pop-up exploding box project, and card.
Not wanting to do such an ambitious project as the exploding box today, I scaled it down to the card she featured - and so without further ado, here is my version!
I really liked the colour combo - its different.....however the embossing is such great fun! The deeper grey tones against embossed white snowflakes is really, really pretty in person. I did the background, in clear embossed snowflakes on a lighter grey called Going Gray.
You can come to a class and do this yourself - there is nothing in my opinion like embossing for Christmas. I started doing it long time ago for snow accents, fell in love and have continured doing it, practically a tradition now. Its second to glitter, LOL!
